    Naw man, lets say you pull up to sonic. You turn off your engine, but keep your acc on so you can listen to your carputer tunes. Then you get your food and ****, and deside to leave. You go to start, but now, you have one of two options. You can either crank it and let the carputer die, or you can wait for the carputer to shut down, crank and start, then start back up your carputer. THAT'S freakin' annoying.

    Keep in mind, that ITPS w/ one of the cheap PSU's does NOT regulate +12v. Be careful. **Sizzle**

    yes it does

    and by die they mean the computer will restart itself, its not like a headunit remember it'll take a while for it to reboot (and it probably isnt very good for it either, i wouldnt recomend doing it)

    ITPS spec from www.itx-warehouse.co.uk :

    4) LM-1084 LDO regulator. The LM-1084 is a low dropout voltage IC that provides further regulation for the ATX DC-DC converters or any other device in need of regulation. In case 12V regulation is not needed, the LM-1084 can be bypassed by applying a solder bump as described in fig 1.1.

    How many of you have this unit?
